Kildare Social Inclusion Week 2017

25th to 29th September.

The first Social Inclusion Week for County Kildare will take place from 25th to 29th September. 

This exciting new initiative is being coordinated by the County Kildare LEADER Partnership in association with the Social Inclusion Pillar of the Kildare Public Participation Network (PPN).

The aim of Social Inclusion Week is to promote social Inclusion and to highlight the great work that is already being done in the County to address issues of Social Exclusion.

This will be done through a series of events across the County.
